Why I love teaching:

I repeatedly say the same thing during my class “It’s the work we do in the dark (i.e. dark cycle room) that puts us in the light.” I love teaching cycle because it gives our clients the “freedom” to improve their cardiovascular health while “unplugging” from the rules & judgment of life. Who thought you could have a dance party at the age of ____, sing to your favorite tunes AND become healthier in the process? Body Alive cycle breaks all of the convention restraints of cardio exercise; making me proud to be a part of the process.

The music that makes me feel “alive”:

Top hits: “This is Me” (The greatest showman soundtrack), “Lose yourself” Eminem, “Proud Mary” (Tina Turner).

Why I love Body Alive:  

One word: Community. There are many studies that have been performed to examine “blue zones” (i.e. loma linda, CA) where the indigenous population has impressive health, vitality and longevity. The consistent factor in these parts of the world isn’t a diet, exercise plan, or some “magic pill” – it’s instead a strong sense of community. Body Alive brings together Cincinnati’s kindest, most dedicated and most inspiring individuals; creating unity each and every day.
